My Manifestation Magic Review

Highly Recommended

The author presents a well detailed summery of the major headings. As a professional in this field, I must say that the points shared in this book are precise.

Purchasing this e-book was one of the best decisions I have made, since it is worth every penny I invested on it. I highly recommend this to everyone out there.

Fundamental Law of Attraction

The concept or law is called the fundamental law of attraction. The fundamental law of attraction as it applies to hypnosis is as follows Whatever you hold in your mind at any given time, your body moves toward that direction. Your body can be directed to move in a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual direction. Think about eating your favorite food. Picture in your mind how wonderful it looks. Picture in your mind the color and texture of the food. Think about how it feels as you chew it. Think about how your favorite food tastes and smells. Feel it in your mouth. Notice how your mouth starts to fill with saliva as you think these thoughts. This is the law of attraction at work. You are holding the thoughts of your favorite food in your mind. As you think about it in great detail your body tends to move toward it by allowing the saliva to flow as if you are digesting the food in real life. Do you begin to salivate when walking by a bakery or in a movie theater when you smell the...

How Your Mind Stresses You Out and What You Can Do about It

Scuba-diving through your thoughts and feelings Checking out the many ways your mind causes stress Using concentration to calm your mind Letting go of stress through spontaneous release Penetrating your stuck places with insight for thousands of years, pundits and sages both East and West have been telling us that our problems originate in our minds. So you won't be surprised if I join the chorus of voices and agree. Yes, they're right Your mind by itself can make a heaven of hell and a hell of heaven (as English poet John Milton put it). But how, you may be wondering, can this cute little truism help you when you don't know what to do about it Sure, my mind's the problem, you may say, but I can't exactly have it surgically removed. You can begin by becoming familiar with how your mind works. As you may have noticed, it's a rather complex assortment of thoughts, ideas, stories, impulses, preferences, and emotions. Without a diagram, it can be as difficult to negotiate as the jumble...

Discovering how turbulence clouds your mind and heart

Needless to say, when you're experiencing inner turbulence, you may find it difficult to connect with being when you sit down to meditate. Sometimes, of course, you may have moments when your mind just settles by itself and you can see all the way down to the bottom of the lake. (To use another nature metaphor, think of those overcast days when the cloud cover suddenly parts and the sun shines through with all its warmth and radiance.) These moments may be marked by feelings of inner peace and tranquility, upsurges of love and joy, or intimations of your oneness with life. But most of the time, you may feel like you're doing a breaststroke through muddy water. Well, the turbulence and confusion you encounter when you meditate doesn't suddenly materialize on cue. It's there all along, clouding your mind and heart and acting as a filter that obscures your clear seeing. You may experience it as an inner claustrophobia or density you're so full of your own emotions and opinions that you...

Making Friends with Your Mind

By now you are aware of how your mind distracts you from the object of your meditation. Whether it is the coolness and warmth or the sound of So - Hum, the mind tries to flood you with impulses, memories, conversations and more. While meditating, do not suppress these experiences however, keep redirecting the focus of your mind back to the specific object that you are meditating on. Be gentle and be consistent in guiding your mind. In time, your mind will obey you. Sitting still and skillfully guiding your mind through these distractions will help you overcome your inner unrest. Do this with a playful attitude and do not be dismayed when the mind sweeps you away now and then. People complain about how their mind distracts them and how unhappy they have become. Such complaints are common and yet the solution is overlooked. If a friend distracted you the way your mind does, what would you do Developing a friendship with your mind is no different. Having a friendly chat with your mind...

The Role of the Imagination in Meditation Intuitive Development and the Law of Attraction

There is one yogic breath called the short breath . You imagine the breath to begin in the Petuitary gland in the center of the brain and end at the fontanel, the baby soft spot at the top of the head. You follow the breath up with your mind on the inhale, but not on the exhale. It is a love offering to God in the crown - soul consciousness merging with God consciousness.

Working with your mind at first

Right now, the whole notion of working with your mind may seem totally incomprehensible. After all, thoughts may fill your head like fog, and you can't see even the faintest trace of blue sky beyond them. The good news is, you don't have to pay any attention to your mind, at least initially. Just keep following your breath, and when you become lost in thought, which you will no doubt do again and again, gently come back. The point is not to stop your mind an impossible task in any case but to stay focused on your breath no matter what your mind does. After weeks and months of regular practice, you may begin to notice that your mind settles down more quickly during your meditations and that fewer thoughts disturb your concentration. In any case, the quality of your mind will no doubt vary from day to day and from meditation to meditation. Here, the point is not to make your mind work differently, but to slowly but surely strengthen and stabilize your concentration. Eventually, you'll...

Words can trigger pictures in your mind

First just think to yourself, I am on holiday. STOP NOW did you see a picture of it in your mind People vary, but it is unlikely, in the very short time I allowed you, that you saw anything very clearly. freely on a surface such as table, chair-arm or your leg. Picture a thread tied to the end of your index finger. Picture the other end of the thread being held by someone you like, whose hand is about a metre above yours. They are trying to lift your finger without you feeling the thread at all. Keep the picture in your mind for a few minutes, closing your eyes if it helps you to picture things. The simple approach is to picture a person or situation that normally arouse strong feelings in you. The person could perhaps be someone that you hate or love or fear. The situation could perhaps be one that you find erotic or embarrassing or exciting or frightening. In any case after you have decided on ONE (do not jump about) keep the picture or pictures of your chosen topic in front of your...

Stopping your mind

Many people believe that the point of meditation is to stop the mind. To get a visceral sense of the futility of such efforts, you can attempt to stop your mind and see what happens. Try the following exercise That's right do whatever you can to keep your mind from generating more thoughts. Try humming to yourself or concentrating on your big toe or recalling a beautiful day in

How To Phrase Your Suggestions So That The Subconscious Will Easily Act On Them

What we have to remember when dealing with the subconscious mind is that it must react to the suggestions it receives as though they are orders While the conscious mind is inhibited or subdued by entering trance state it is possible to reach the subconscious mind un-hindered by the conscious mind's critical factor. In order to get the best results from the subconscious mind we have to follow certain rules when wording our suggestions. If you can create well phrases suggestions you will be able to put this great force for good to work for you without you having to use will power or conscious effort.

How many goals should I write

As you get more experienced however it is important that you don't limit yourself. If you want to live in a ten bedroom mansion don't make it your goal to live in a three bedroom semi You will not be motivated. Your subconscious will move heaven and earth if it knows you really want something, believe you are worth it, and knows you CAN get it. Don't worry about how you are going to get it. Once you have programmed your subconscious mind correctly you will be amazed as to how many ideas will appear as if by magic and at the most peculiar time. It is for this reason you should always keep a small pad and paper with you at all times especially by the bed.

Subconscious Reading Power

You might remember me telling you that your mind can absorb over two million pieces of information every second. Well it is possible to use this fact to your advantage. Since you will be utilising your subconscious mind you will need to relax your conscious mind sufficiently in order to allow your subconscious the freedom to act. This technique is not like reading a book in the usual way and you will not necessarily know consciously whether or not you have absorbed any information. You might be wondering why use this technique at all in the first place. Having learnt to scan the book while in a deeply relaxed state your subconscious mind will see and absorb the words on the page at an incredible rate. Having just scanned the book in this way you just seem to obtain knowledge intuitively. It is not a conscious thing. Someone asks you a relevant question about the book and you just seem to know the answer. for you. Imagine your mind being opened up to receive information. It feels...

What Will I Get Out Of It

The problems of concentration tend to arise more frequently when we are learning a subject because we have to and not because we want to. By now you will realise that the state of your mind or your attitude towards something is of vital importance. If you're trying to learn, but at the same time your telling yourself that you hate the subject, or you don't think you will ever be able to learn all this stuff, then you're creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. Suppose you have just joined an evening class to learn French. However when you come home at night from work in after a long day you feel tired and simply want to put your feet up after dinner. You'll have to run through and your mind what motivated you to the join the class and the first place. But maybe you'd like to go to France on your holidays frequently and would love to be able to wander through the markets and speak to the people about the goods they are selling. Or perhaps you want to buy a property there and maybe retire...

Hypnosis Or Meditation

The idea that we in the west are responsible for discovering the power and techniques of Hypnosis is to my mind a little arrogant to say the least. If you think about it hypnotic induction is in essence simply a means of accessing our subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a bit like an empty syringe which gains access to the mind instead of the blood stream. It is what you put in the syringe that is all important. In the next section I want to discuss how you can use your trance sessions to improve your health and channel to power of your mind to boost the bodies natural defences. Before I can do this I must first give you a bit of background first. Mystics in the east have for thousands of years known of and learned how to access the power of the subconscious mind and have achieved states of human enlightenment and control of their physical bodies which baffle western science. If you are serious about your health and want to get the most out of self-hypnosis some knowledge of these...

The Power Of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is probably one of the most misunderstood phenomenon in our lives today. Hypnosis has long been associated with mumbo-jumbo, occult and sinister mystery men bent on controlling your mind. Despite the proof that exists about the remarkably positive effects of Hypnosis it is widely shunned and ignored by many people. 2. It can enable you to reprogram your mind to think positively and steer yourself towards your goals (Whatever they might be).

Hypnosis Mind Control

Obviously if you could convincingly use any of the 3 techniques above, you could give a hypnosis or mind control performance that was absolutely mindblowing. If you've hypnotised someone prior to the performance invisible compromise - no one else, including the subject, know that they've already been hypnotised , you could then make them react to very obvious embedded commands to make your mind control skills look even better than they really are.

The Scientific Nature of Hypnosis

Hypnosis is dealing with the subconscious or unconscious mind. A person's subconscious mind may hold all sorts of aims, desires, wants, character traits which the conscious mind keeps back or holds in check because of the restrictions and demands society puts on all of us. In other words we simply cannot just behave exactly as we might wish.

The Importance of Goal Setting

Now the purpose of asking you to do this is fairly obvious. I am trying to make you think a bit about you current condition. If you join the crosses together you will probably get a wavy line. Hopefully you won't have a straight line on the far left and you probably won't have a straight line going down on the far right, although that would be nice. I want to give you some idea of where to concentrate your mind on improving certain areas in your life. You should start to recognise what really motivates or excites you. It is in these areas that you should concentrate on because real change will happen in these areas more rapidly. You will find it easier to keep your mind focused. your new house on a beautifully sunny day with light streaming through the windows. Look at the wall paper. The colour of the bathroom suite. See how well equipped the kitchen is etc. Visualisation is very important in impressing the subconscious mind. Remember it responds well to emotion.

Putting It All Together

Now lets assume you have written out your goals on your piece of good quality paper. This is your master set of goals which you keep very safe. The first thing you will do is to re-write your goals out on a separate piece of paper. This fixes them consciously in your mind. The next release is one of the most important so read it carefully It deals with your health and what part your mind can play in improving it. I promise you it really is a fascinating area.

Meditation and Why You Should Practise It

Clearing the mind is an extremely difficult thing to achieve, as we have already seen, which even masters of Zen Buddhism take many years of long patience and practise. The object is to still your thoughts and go into a deeper level of consciousness. So how do you quieten the mind Well this is where the mantra comes in. You see if you are focusing on the sound of the mantra it is difficult for any other more distracting thoughts to enter your mind. Lets face it your not going to find your inner self if your constantly thinking about has anyone fed the cat or what should I cook for dinner etc. We were told that from time to time other thoughts would sneak into our conscious thoughts. When we became aware of this we would very gently start to silently chant the mantra once more and the distracting thoughts went away. Now and again the mind would become so still that there would be no extraneous thoughts, not even the mantra being chanted. This is when you reach into your inner self and...

How To Build a Strong PSI

Your subconscious mind has already built up a firm view of what it thinks you are and how you fit in the world around you. You have to remember it is a vastly complex computer and your life experiences thus far have programmed it accordingly. You know for example that drinking bleach or caustic soda is a bad idea. You also know that putting your hand in a fire is painful. This is obvious. Your subconscious computer is there to protect you. The problem is it can be over zealous as we have seen in some of the examples given in part two. Sometimes there seems to be a contradiction in how it goes about doing its job. Remember Clare who put on a lot of weight because she was scared of getting pregnant again. Putting on weight is not a healthy thing to do but her subconscious reasoned that it was necessary to stop her having sex with her husband. It reasoned that if she were to get pregnant again her father would die Remember your subconscious mind does not respond to logic or rational...

Hypnotic Considerations

It's also important to speak clearly, slowly, calmly, and in a monotonous tone. Any intonation of words catches the attention of the conscious mind and stops it from switching off. Repetitive, monotonous speech slips right past the critical censor and into the subconscious mind, achieving exactly what we are looking for.

Can Hypnotism Be Used To Cause Harm

One way a cult prevents its recruits from leaving is by using phobia indoctrination . It is sometimes called triggered phobic response . What this means is that trainers implant or programme irrational fears into your subconscious mind as to what will happen to you if you ever left the cult. You might typically be told that you will go insane, be hit by a car, get cancer etc. 1 think you get the general idea. Different cults use different phobias and believe me it is very effective It has been described a prison without bars. Nice people

Powerful Therapeutic Tool

Please visualise yourself in 15 years time from now. See yourself clearly on a movie screen in your mind. Now, split the screen in half and on the other side see yourself as you are now. The older you is looking at the present you. If you listen carefully you will hear the older you speaking to the present you. I think he may be thanking you.

Eat what you want and loose weight

Yeah I know you have heard it all before but with the use of Hypnosis you can achieve a healthy normal weight and maintain it while eating as much as you want. The crucial difference is that you educate your subconscious mind so that you only eat what your body actually needs. In other words when you are physiologically hungry and not when you are psychologically hungry. You only want to eat what your body needs to function and remain healthy. The important thing to remember is that your body will take that shape. What your subconscious mind believes and expects Will Happen You always readily accept the suggestions given while in Hypnosis and reach a perfect balance between the conscious and subconscious mind. Each time you go into trance you find it easier and easier You know your body to be a truly remarkable creation and you have such a tremendous respect for it You know what your chosen weight and size is for your own body and you constantly see yourself in your mind's eye at this...

How To Develop A Good Concentration

However you should be at an advantage here because by practising self hypnosis, or meditation, you will develop the ability to quieten the mind naturally. Before you start to study prepare your mind by slowing the breathing down and meditating for a few minutes. 1. Quieten your mind by meditating for a few moments before revising or studying.

Thats right its Stress

You don't need me to remind you how stressful it can be to take an exam and have your mind to go blank when you turned the examination paper over. None of the answers come to you when you need them most however once the exam is over and you are outside feeling more relaxed the answers that were so elusive before suddenly come flooding in your mind.

Sickness Health

Re-educating your mind to help your mind and body become more healthy is the most logical first step to take. Of course defining what healthy means can be a little confusing and depends on your philosophical stance. I hope to give you some useful pointers at a later stage. Your mind is a very complex piece of machinery. You could liken it to an extremely sophisticated computer.

What isnt Hypnosis

The simple fact is that although you subdue the critical censor and speak almost directly to the subconscious mind, people will not respond to suggestions that are against their most deeply held moral beliefs. For example, some people are frightened that whilst they are unconscious (they're not unconscious - see below), they might be taken advantage of sexually or in some other way, but they are at all times conscious and aware and in control of what is happening. Any attempt to force them to do something against their strongly held beliefs will result in them coming out of hypnosis immediately.

Emotions

The subconscious mind is where your emotions are held. If you like it is the real you. If you think about it is our emotions that control the strength of our desires and this is why our subconscious mind will always control our conscious mind since our desires govern our behaviour. Our subconscious computer has been programmed since birth to believe and behave in a certain way according to the image it has of you. This is why an alcoholic knows full well consciously that his over drinking is doing himself great harm he will continue to drink because his subconscious mind has some hidden reason to make him do so. If our subconscious minds have been programmed badly then our thoughts, decisions and actions will be bad for us and as a result our lives. Our subconscious mind cannot discriminate or analyse what it is told and will believe anything the conscious mind believes and allows through. You know this to be true because when you dream at night and find yourself being chased down...

Going Into Trance

This businessman was very startled to find that he was doing far more good for his business in the afternoon than he was in the morning. By not trying to think of things consciously he allowed the vast creative resources of his subconscious mind to filter through with the novel ideas he needed. Even reading his favourite magazines allowed his conscious mind to become distracted long enough for his subconscious mind to come through. What we are really talking about here is a daydreaming state.

Deepening

As you let go .just allowing that wonderful sense of deep relaxation to spread from your eyes down through the rest of your body. And as you experience those subtle feelings of deep physical relaxation, deepening, and deepening. so your mind is relaxing, unwinding, enjoying a pleasant hypnotic trance. In a moment, to begin really deepening that trance, we can gently open and close those eyes. as I count to three you will open your eyes for a moment feeling a wave of deep relaxation enveloping your body and your mind as you do so. beginning now one, two three, lifting those heavy eyelids. and three, two, one. letting them fall shut once again, relaxing twice as deeply, ten times as deeply. Now that the body's so deeply, so profoundly relaxed, you can allow the mind to enjoy an even deeper level of trance. In a moment begin counting down from 100, counting out loud, repeating the words deeper and deeper after each number. Each time you say the number, each time you say the words deeper...

Eliminate Guilt

If we are going to change and build our PSI we must first remember how the subconscious mind functions. First of all it does not really like cold logical arguments. The subconscious mind responds best to EMOTION and FEELINGS. It also likes IMAGES. So the more we can appeal to these three things the greater our success. Two people who were once close and know everything about each other can do a lot of harm to each other emotionally. They know the weak and vulnerable areas to probe and twist the knife in. If you are in such a relationship you must be very clear in your mind what it is you want. Your options are as follows - There are a number of immutable laws governing the mind the most important of which is that we become what we most think about . If you constantly dwell on negative or depressing thoughts then don't be surprised if you get or feel depressed. The more positive you can be on a day to day basis the better. If you think you tend to be the kind of person who dwells on...

Part Five

HOW YOUR MIND CAN AFFECT YOUR HEALTH Although western scientists are reluctant to say, for the time being at least, that the mind alone is capable of curing cancer they are prepared to state that the state of your mind does have a pronounced effect on your susceptibility to an illness and its rate of progress.

The Script

Your arm begins to lift. It continues moving, lifting, and rising until it finally comes back down to rest upon your body. Now when you feel the movement in your hand and in your arm, don't try to resist. You could resist if you chose to, that is not why you are here. Just release your subconscious mind. All right, now we are ready to begin.

Adapt to it

As you can probably see there is no hard and fast rule as to how a hypnotic trance should be induced it depends on you the subject and how you react to the hypnotist. With self-hypnosis by regularly practising you will be able induce a trance by being more and more aware of your mind and body. Sometimes you might feel too agitated to develop a trance which is fine and perfectly natural. The point is you cannot force it. Try to be relaxed and natural.

Warning

In such cases people have accepted there is a problem consciously but the subconscious mind is reacting to other outdated or erroneous information on which to justify its actions. This is in effect bad programming from the past. I could tell you about many cases which have been successfully treated with hypnosis. The following examples may give you some idea as to the power of the subconscious mind and how, if it is not checked, it can cause great anguish, unhappiness, and harm to many individuals. Under Hypnosis it transpired that her subconscious mind was punishing her because at the age of sixteen she became pregnant and her parents made her have an abortion. She never wanted the abortion but was forced into it. She felt like she had committed murder. Because she considered herself a murderer her subconscious mind wanted to protect her from making the same mistake again or punish her and prevent her from committing the same crime. It may seem bizarre but this is how the...

Moving Qi

In order to move Qi you must put your mental intention in front of it. In other words if you can sense Qi in your feet an calf area of your leg just gently let your mind go to the area around your knees and imagine you feel the sensation there. In a very short time you will feel the tingly feeling grow and move to this area. Once you have collected the energy in the right area just let it rest there. You can now imagine your body healing itself and rebuilding damaged cells or sore muscles. After a while let the Qi move and go where it wants to naturally. If you are perfectly healthy the Qi will move wherever it is needed. Your mind and body knows what is best. However a little experimenting now and again is good fun. Next month I will give a some other ideas on meditation and moving Qi but this will do for now. An important point to note. When you bring your arms up they should feel very heavy like lead weights and have as little tension in them as possible. As you lift them up keep...

Weight Loss

Often the seeds of the problem of overeating can start at a very early age. As we grow up there are all sorts of messages programmed into the subconscious in connection with eating. When food is left on the plate you are told not to waste it. You are told that you must have three square meals a day. When a child cries because it has hurt itself the parents will often stick a sweet into its mouth as a comforter. Such messages over time will programme your mind to eat because you feel unhappy or because you are ill or for many other reasons but not because you are actually hungry and need the food as a source of energy and sustenance.

Whats in a Name

I have not even described the shape or nature of a persons teeth. Do they stick out, do they have gaps between them, do they have too many, what colour are they You can go on and on. The point is you don't have to use all these items but just select the ones that seem appropriate. The very fact that you are aware of these characteristics means that you have a large number of associations, or hooks, that can be used to help you make a mental picture in your mind. 3. If you can try to form an association between their name and their appearance. Some names which suggest a colour like Black, White, Green, or an occupation like Carpenter, Taylor, make it easier to form the connection. So to do names like Spring, March, Winter which denote seasons make associations easier. If the person's surname is Spring you could imagine them standing on an enormous spring bouncing around the room. The more outrageous, humorous, or ridiculous the image the better it will be fixed in your mind. Now there...

What is Hypnosis

The actual mechanism that makes hypnosis work is quite difficult to quantify. Basically, the things that drive us and make us who we are, are deeply embedded in our subconscious mind. We don't need to carefully think about what we strongly agree or disagree with, what we love or hate, or strongly desire, it is hard wired into our mind. Some of this comes from personal experience, preference, and needs, and some from our childhood from direct commands or suggestions from our parents or authority figures. This can be explained quite nicely by Freudian psychology. The Id (subconscious) is the most powerful part of the mind, and it automatically, and without our conscious realisation, contains our deepest desires, and controls our behaviour. The Ego (rational, logical mind) analyses information to see if it makes sense, before passing it onto the Super Ego (critical censor). The Super Ego is like the gatekeeper to the subconscious mind, it decides whether or not to accept the information,...

The Induction

As you know by now the object of the exercise is to allow your conscious mind to concentrate on something so as to allow your subconscious mind to filter through eventually so that you can tell it what you want it to do for you. For the time being we are simply interested in getting you used to going into trance state easily and back to normal consciousness. You always readily accept the suggestions given while in Hypnosis and reach a perfect balance between the conscious and subconscious mind. Each time you go into trance you find it easier and easier 7.) When you are feeling totally relaxed just let your mind drift. Let any thoughts that come into your mind just wander in and out. Don't try to stop them or hold onto them just float there like an observer watching life go by from a cafe or on a beach. In part two you will learn how to programme your mind to help you become more positive and creative in whatever field you desire

Relaxation Exercises

Sit comfortably on a stool or low backed chair. Now take ten slow deep breaths to calm down your system and put more oxygen into your blood. If possible try to breath from the abdomen. When you expel the stale air from your lungs bring you stomach in. When inhaling count in your mind up to six, but if that seems too long hold it for about five or whatever you feel comfortable with, and hold for a maximum count of twenty. Then exhale slowly counting up to ten.

Imagination

It to the end This would be quiet easy to do because your subconscious mind finds with apprehension because your subconscious mind will make you imagine that you All creativity is found in the subconscious mind. It is where the great artists, composers, scientists, and inventors draw on their inspiration. Many great men have said that they carried out some of their greatest works while in a kind of trance state or day dream. Mozart, one of the most intuitive composers in history, claimed his compositions were formed in his mind like dreams independent of his will. ln fact the list can go on and on Isaac Newton, Coleridge, Goethe etc. It is the subconscious mind that gives us the drive to push us through life towards our goals. If you do not decide what those goals should be then it will select them for you. This is why you should know how to direct your subconscious mind in the direction YOU want to go and not the other way round. Without guidance it can direct you in the wrong...

Motivation

I would hope that whatever it is you want to achieve with the help of hypnosis it is something you really want and not just some kind of passing whim. The more you want to succeed then obviously the greater the success you will have. It is no use hypnotising yourself to become a brilliant snooker player if you don't really intend to go down to the pool hail several days a week. Why waste this great force within you and your precious time on something you don't really want. If you order your subconscious mind to help you to earn more money and really mean it then it will move heaven and earth, work day and night until you have achieved your goal. Remember the subconscious mind never sleeps. I have some suggestions to help you decide what it is you really want to achieve but for the time being just read the following rules on how to talk to your subconscious mind In this months release you are going to learn how to condition your mind to become more positive and receptive to new ideas...

Part Seven

Today this use of ritual would be considered pointless but at that time it might have provided the necessary catalysis to help the patients cure themselves. It gave them a link to their subconscious mind. It was a bit like using a placebo. To this day we still do not really know why the subconscious mind reacts to suggestions while in a hypnotic trance. There have been many theories about hypnosis over the past hundred years or so.

Memory Technique

Now although most information is forgotten immediately after reading, there is some evidence to suggest that memory actually improves for about two to five minutes after learning something. This has been called the reminiscence effect. We are not clear why this should happen but some have theorised that it is at this stage that our conscious mind makes links with the subconscious mind in some way. Next month I will go into memory in much greater detail and show you some amazing techniques that you can put to use to vastly improve your ability to remember. The thing to remember about memory is that we don't really forget anything. And as I have already told you during this course, our subconscious minds remember almost everything we see, hear, and do. The real problem is not memory but how to recall all the information that our subconscious mind has stored away. It may be that you can remember a particular school assembly when you were young but if you do remember it, it is because it...

Is Ageing Inevitable

As soon as you take a bite out of an apple your mouth will start to secret enzymes which start the digestive process. Perhaps there is nothing mysterious about this however if you were to imagine or simply thought about eating an apple your mind would trigger the exact same response even though there is no food present.

View of Individuality

Before you actually close it, you think or intend to close. Such a process of intention occurs not only in one or two thought moments, but in a series of thought moments, several in a succession as you note 'intending', 'intending'. Now this thought of intention which occurs in your mind is 'namakaya' , (mental body or aggregate). Through empirical knowledge, the existence of namakaya is quite evident.

Getting Started

Here's where you actually find out how to sit down and work with your mind (and heart) Just in case you're intimidated by the prospect of being quiet and turning inward, I provide easy-to-follow instructions that lead you through the process gently, step by step. I include a separate chapter on all the little details that most meditation books take for granted such as how to keep your back (more or less) straight without getting uptight and what to do with your eyes and hands and a chapter on stretching and preparing your body for sitting. You can even meditate lying down, if you prefer.

Integrating Conscious and Unconscious Learning

This brings us to another important point regarding the use of hypnosis. Because you are dealing with a person who has both a conscious mind and an unconscious mind, achieving good results with a patient in a deep trance does not mean that the patient will benefit from it in the ordinary waking state. There has to be an integration of unconscious learnings with conscious learnings. This should be foremost in your mind whenever you use hypnosis on psychiatric patients. You can recognize that you can resolve a conflict, a phobia, or an anxiety in the trance state. But unless you do something about it in the waking state, the patient is still likely to have that anxiety or phobia. You can remove a phobia for a certain color in the trance state so that the patient behaves normally. Nevertheless, when he awakens from the trance state, he will still have conscious habit patterns of response to that particular color. And therefore it is essential to integrate the unconscious learnings with...

Lord of Civilization see Mahachohan

The threefold spirit on its own plane. In occultism it often means the unified triad - Atma, Buddhi, Manas Spiritual Will, Intuition and Higher mind, - or the immortal part of man which reincarnates in the lower kingdoms and gradually progresses through them to man and thence to the final goal.

Were to try to do it yourself you will find that the mind can slip away for a number of reasons. One is that there is little to stop your mind wandering back into everyday preoccupations. Another is boredom there would not be enough interest in the beach scene in itself to hold your interest. Another is a slight emotional resistance you might not have liked the initial alone feeling, and it would have tempted you away immediately. Another might be sleep the scenes have a certain dreamlike quality and this in itself, if you are rather tired, can lead you to drop off. Finally you might find the scene very interesting but that can activate a rather analytic or critical part of the mind which can then drown the more fluid part of the mind that is creating the pictures.

The Mystery of Quality Sleep

Until the 20th century, it was believed that our minds completely turned off during sleep. Recent scientific discovery has un-covered something completely different. What you'll discover in this e-book is that once you sleep, your mind enters a state so fascinating and rich with structure that it makes being awake look boring When we're sleeping, our minds are more active than they are when we're awake - which you're about to learn. Knowing this may lead you to asking yourself the question

Avalokitesvara Syn Kuanyin

The same is true of reciting the Buddha's name. However, you should concentrate your mind to the utmost and put a stop to 'sundry distracting thoughts,' doubts and uncertainties. Whatever you seek will then materialize. As the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara has great affinities with sentient beings in the Saha World, you should, in addition to your regular Pure Land sessions, recite Her name. Alternatively, you may also recite the Surangama Mantra or the Great Compassion Mantra. (Patriarch Yin Kuang). PLZ 153

Developing Our Conscious Levels of Self

When you were a baby and first heard a bird sing, your mind was relatively simple and reasonably clear. But now you realize how an older mind starts to chase after things and becomes cluttered. You have watched children, as we say, ''go through stages.'' During their first 5 years they become clever, and run down long halls of self-reflecting mirrors. You have observed how their levels of consciousness proliferate, linking self, time, space, and trivial things into one huge amalgam of functions and dysfunctions.

For Further Contemplation

In the practice of slianiatha we consciously rest our awareness upon our breathing. The breath is like a steed and awareness is its rider. Attending to the breath is unlikely to arouse craving or aversion. Shifting into neutral, we neither aggravate nor distort the mind. Therefore, you might expect this practice to be rather boring. The object of attention doesn't seem very interesting, just the same old breath. And yet once you have developed some continuity, there are surprises in store. You will find a sense of well-being and balance that arises in a quiet, serene way, as if you are listening to waves rolling into shore. You can rest in that serenity and settle deeper and deeper. Your mind is like a stream, and you are simply not polluting it with distractions. Those who have studied the natural environment know that if you stop contaminating a polluted river, its self-purifying ability will come to the fore. The same is true for the natural healing properties of the mind.

The Phrasing of Suggestions

After thorough, careful study of the technique of hypnosis and of formulating suggestions, you will increasingly find that you can trust yourself to innovate spontaneously. In fact, as you progress you will undoubtedly be delighted with some of the creative and valuable suggestions that flow into your mind. However, the concept of trusting the unconscious should not be used to justify sloppy clinical work and a lack of thoughtful preparation or treatment planning.

Example 2 Starting with a house

I want you to let your mind roam over houses. They can be old or new. They can be big or small castles or cottages. Ones you have seen and ones you have never seen. After a while one will seem somehow more interesting than the rest. I want you to tell me once that happens.

When Youre Fully Awake

Duh But what really happens in your mind when we're fully awake It's at this point that our wakefulness system is at its peak point When we're awake, and in beta brain waves, we are mostly in-tune with our super active conscious mind, which races from thought to thought, and keeps us on track with our daily lives. We'll get into the fun part of understanding the conscious subconscious mind later on in the Vivid Dreams - Unlocking Shadow Memories e-book you received in the downloadable package with this book.

The Structure Of Selfinteraction

To master the logic of strategic self-hypnosis, you need to understand how your mind works. It is especially fruitful to look at human mental behavior in terms of two interlocking but distinct processes of self-interaction that we can call thinking and feeling. I will continue to use the term mind to refer to both of these lumped together or your mental behavior generally. What I am presenting here in this volume involves an entirely different way of making sense of your mind. 1 am not dismissing nor slighting psychoanalytic thought in practice or theory one cannot so easily ignore all the data pointing to unconscious processes. Rather, I am saying that a social behavioral analysis of the sort we are discussing in this chapter has greater practical relevance to what we are trying to do in strategic self-hypnosis. Being a pragmatist, I therefore adopt the model that best helps get the job done. So let's cut the theory and get to the meat. What are these two streams of self-interaction...

Getting into the habit

Take a habit that you wish you could break but can't. Maybe it's smoking, drinking coffee, or eating junk food. The next time you do it, instead of spacing out or daydreaming, turn it into a meditation. Pay close attention as you draw the smoke into your lungs, for example, or chew the French fries. Notice how your body feels. Whenever your mind drifts off, notice where it goes you may have favorite fantasies that

Working With The Two Mental Processes

Unfortunately, the rediscovery of feeling by humanistic psychology has led to the claim that it is somehow better than intellectual thinking. Nonsense. If there are two parts to your mind, you are intended to use both. You come closest to operating at your full potential when you employ both of them in harmonious coordination. This is the royal road to maximum performance, the way of strategic self-hypnosis. In this volume, you'll be learning ways of developing hypnotic strategies by which you can construct specific fantasy images and episodes to indirectly get at your innermost mental processes. Through this approach you can directly or indirectly work with any or all of your hidden potentialities and program your spontaneous conduct. But to get what you want out of this self-hypnosis program, you need to have some idea of how your mind works and what it is that you are trying to do with your thinking, feeling, and imagining.

Subvocal Transmissions

Before we get into the first segment of this technique let me make you aware of some facts. Constant mental chattering or thought creates tensions. When you are thinking your voice box moves ever so slightly as thoughts are flowing through your mind. In addition, the jaw moves slightly, as well as the tongue and the eyes. In fact, as stated before there is a fine state of tension when we are thinking. So to achieve true Mindlessness, we first must become aware of the facial, throat, and neck tension which are associated with thinking.

Performance Principle 5 Develop A Trance Voice

And you're walking past a shop that happens to be playing the 'holiday tune', and suddenly your mind just drifts back, and you enter the same sort of holiday atmosphere, or the holiday mood that you had when you first heard the song. And I haven't even taken the time yet to fully set that voice inside your mind yet.

Emergency Room Verbalizations

You won't mind being comfortable while we work, will you You know anything hurts less when you can relax even a little bit, or when you begin to distribute some of your attention elsewhere. No one can argue with this. The truism initiates positive response, the important yes-set of mind. You know the pleasant sensation of warmth on your skin when you stretch out in the sun in a favorite spot. You have time now to think about such things, to let your mind wander . . . and wonder as you wander. You don't even have to pay attention to what I am saying. The deep part of your mind can listen to the voice speaking directly to you. All other sounds can deepen that sense of comfort that comes as you relax and rest so pleasantly.

Conclusions and Hypotheses from the Author

There are several kinds of trance (what some people mistakenly call hypnosis). One kind of trance is what we call the dissociated trance. This means you have two very distinct tracks going on in your mind at the same time. In the case of driving your car to work and not remembering the commute, you don't remember it because you were partially dissociated from the driving experience. The unconscious part of your mind was pretty much driving the car and the conscious part of your mind was sitting in the passenger seat, maybe having an imaginary conversation with your boss, your spouse, a customer or your kids. Whatever the conscious part of your mind was doing, it wasn't driving the car or you would remember the signs, the roads, the commute and the other cars, but you don't. The reason you don't remember is because your conscious mind was distracted by thinking about other things it considered more important than driving. When someone asks you what a hypnotic trance is like you can...

Buddhism A Modern Perspective

Another because the emphasis in Buddhism is on internal practice rather than on external practice. Its emphasis is on the way you develop your mind rather than the way you dress, the kind of food you take, the way you wear your hair and so forth. the light of their own experience. When they know for themselves that certain things are harmful then they should abandon them. When they know for themselves that certain things are beneficial, that they lead to happiness and calm, then they should follow them. The Buddha gives this advice that one has to verify what one hears in the light of one's experience. In the context of the Buddha's advice to the Kalamas, I think what the Buddha is saying is to use your own mind as a test tube. You can see for yourself that when greed and anger are present, they lead to suffering, pain and disturbance. And you can see for yourself that when greed and anger are absent from your mind, it leads to calm, to happiness. It is a very simple experiment which...

So to begin with sit so that you are not distracted by any physical discomfort or muscular strain. Just tell me when you are really fine in that way. Y. Now probably there is a lot going on in your mind.

OK, anything else on your mind F. There is a bit of an itch on my leg.

What it should give you, however, is something to compare with the sort of standard old-school inductions of the last chapter. You will, for example, note that in some there is the instruction to make your mind as blank as possible , but with no help given to achieve it. After trying something like the above you will probably come to see how seldom this blankness happen just in seconds, and how often it has to be worked at for a few minutes. And you will have a better idea of how easy or hard it is to get the tight focus of attention that both traditional and modern hypnotists and hypnotherapists use.

Hypnosis An Everyday Experience

In the book Through the Open Door, you can learn how to de-hypnotize yourself from the trances (states of mind) you no longer wish to experience. You will also learn how to hypnotize yourself so you can experience those states of mind you do want to enjoy. Your mind is for you to take control of and this book shows you how.

What does focus of attention mean

Now I just want to talk to the fingers on your left hand. And then only to the index finger and the middle finger. They are going to feel particularly relaxed, and very good. Nothing else matters. Your mind can get sleepier and sleepier, more and more blank. But that index finger is going to start to float gently up into the air. (Pause.) Very gently. (Pause.) Very gently into the air.

Positive Suggestions For Effective Living

Retrieving Positive Experiences

Stephen Well, yes I didn't expect you to make it so clear. You have practiced and become very good at wondering what's going to happen in the future and being worried about it. In fact, you're an expert. But you have forgotten to take the time to relax yourself, allow your immune system to recharge, clear your mind, and just have a sense of happiness and satisfaction with something. One and still deeper And in just a moment you're going to be as deeply concentrated in that area of your mind as you have ever been and you can transform the words that I say so that they are relevant to you Zero Now take a moment to let the first incident you recall come to mind Let yourself skip to the first memory you come to wherein you had a feeling of joy or safety It might be a time when you were playing with a puppy that insisted upon licking your face Maybe it was a time when you were getting sloppy eating a watermelon maybe it was a time when you got an unexpected good grade on a college paper or...

The Constitution Of Objects

Not only is the sheer existence of the realist's 'entities in themselves' wholly insufficient for accounting for our awareness of objects, increasingly complex types of object require increasingly complex processes of consciousness. Consider yourself and a five-year-old child. Certain things - such as atoms, the decimal expansion of n, the state of the nation - are possible objects for you, but are simply unavailable to the child. There must be something about the configuration of your mind that differs from the child's, something which allows you to have such objects. Or compare the child and a horse in relation to such objects as words, or utensils. Or consider all of these in contrast to a subject whose life is nothing more than a tumult of experiences, one who is not even aware of coherent objects persisting in a space around itself. At each level we come across various mental processes which are presupposed by having, or even being in a position to have, various sorts of objects....

Suggestions For Sleep

And each night when you go to bed, you'll be at ease and relaxed, you'll feel relaxed and calm knowing that every day is another adventure. Even though some days will have problems and things we don't like, every day will be an adventure. Starting now, as you go to bed every night, you'll be calm, and at ease, your mind and your body will be calm, tranquil and relaxed. You'll be able to sleep calmly, at peace, able to sleep the way you did when you were a baby so calm, so relaxed, so completely at peace. You'll sleep so well. You'll be able to sleep soundly, knowing in the back of your mind, that day by day you're beginning to live more fully, more deeply. As time goes on, you will live with more and more wisdom, and you'll let yourself sleep the way a baby does, when a baby feels good and very secure. You'll sleep very well, and very calm, and when you wake up in the morning, you'll be fully rested, very refreshed and at peace.

Staying with the Moment

You see, to focus on your mind as you function in everyday life, you need to turn your mind inside out. Indeed, your mind must be strong and focused in order to be mindful of itself. So naturally it is difficult to focus on your mind if you are agitated or distracted. Try being mindful of whatever you are doing at the moment walking, sitting, bathing, cleaning, looking at a flower. You can do this at any time and in any place. As you train your mind to focus, you will find you are less distracted. Later, as you go on, you can be mindful of your thoughts and emotions as they arise. Suppose you are driving. You have to pay attention to the driving, don't you Your mind has to be there at the time and place of driving, concentrating on the road, watching the other drivers. You cannot afford to be distracted too much by other thoughts. It is something like meditation on the task at hand. But often we do not carry out other tasks in this concentrated way. Probably...

Laying the Foundation Motivation Attitude and Beginners Mind

J s an effective practice for reprogramming your mind and opening your W heart, meditation has no parallel. But traditionally, meditation never stands alone it's always accompanied by an emphasis on motivation and attitude (that is, on the qualities of mind that fuel the fires of meditation and keep you going when the going gets tough).

Q Why Do I Feel So Restless Just Sitting Still

Your mind and body will gradually acclimate to being still. In the beginning, this might take up almost your entire 8 minute meditation period. But even if you experience only seven seconds of focus, it is very significant. One day, you will find that your mind will, of its own accord, settle down quickly, perhaps only a minute or so into your meditation period, or even as you take your preparation breaths. As for your body, it will eventually, of its own accord, head for peace like a homing pigeon.

The Candle Practice

After relaxing all the muscles of the body, place your attention on the candle flame. Then you simply keep your attention on the candle flame. Do not allow your mind to pull your attention into thoughts or dreams or memories or plans. Your goal is to maintain complete concentration on the candle flame.

If you can be mindful without judgments and without likes and dislikes then you are practicing with an inner silence or

That's why it's better to start slowly by focusing on a particular moment. You may not be good at it all at once. But you will find that this practice of staying with the moment facilitates the inner silence. If you concentrate on the moment, and if your concentration is good, then no stray thoughts will enter your mind. As you practice, not only will you be more focused, but you will also become more alert and sensitive to what is happening around you. When your mindfulness is strong, then you can direct your attention inward to your mind, your emotions or your thoughts. That's right. Being mindful is not sufficient. It is only a means. What is crucial is incorporating equanimity or upekkha into your mindfulness.

Stealth tactic 4 presuppositions

You can continue listening to me as you proceed inside your mind to make pictures of places where you could apply this sort of knowledge and still you won't have all those gaps filled because it's not until you've gone out and done it yourself that you'll begin to notice how this actually works.

Quick Look At e Hindrances

Restlessness Return to rising and falling until your mind gets calm enough to overcome it. Check for tension in your body and mind. Tension is the mother of restlessness. Look repeatedly at the mental feelings, and the pictures in your mind until you can understand the composition of its characteristic feeling. (Don't be surprised at this stage if the hindrance gets stronger). Also check your mental attitude Do I desire this, or do I dislike it Do I fear it

Sifting through the layers of inner experience

When you meditate, in addition to developing your concentration and calming your mind, you may find yourself delving deeper into your inner experience and uncovering layers you didn't even know existed. Now, what do you suppose lies at the bottom The great meditative traditions have different names for it essence, pure being, true nature, spirit, soul, the pearl of great price, the source of all wisdom and love. The Zen folks call it your original face before your parents were born. You might like to picture it as a spring that gushes forth the pure, refreshing, deeply satisfying water of being without reservation. (For more on this spring, see Chapter 1, where it awaits the climber at the top of the mountain of meditation.) When you turn your attention inward, the first thing you're likely to encounter is the ceaseless chattering of your mind. The Buddhists like to compare the mind to a noisy monkey that swings uncontrollably from thought-branch to thought-branch without ever...

How to tell the difference between thoughts and feelings

Thoughts are the images, memories, beliefs, judgments, and reflections that float through your mind and often give rise to your feelings. If you follow the word feel with the word like,you're probably voicing a thought or a belief, rather than a feeling. You can practice breaking strong feelings down into their component parts by asking What are the thoughts and images in my mind that keep me feeling the way I do And what am I actually experiencing in my body right now, aside from my thoughts

The Power of the Mind

Your mind can do some very remarkable things. It can calculate answers to problems at speeds only exceeded by the guy in the car behind you hitting his horn when the light turns green for you. (The brain cranks out rapid- fire answers to questions like these Should you hit the brakes Should you pick up the stranded motorist Should you donate to the person collecting at the front door Do you buy Dove or Ivory ) The unconscious mind decides all of the answers to these questions so you don't have to think about it at the conscious level. If you had to consciously decide what to do in every single situation in life you would be completely overwhelmed and never get anything done. The wonderful thing about the unconscious mind is that once it understands something it will take care of it for you without asking for further advice from the conscious mind. Your unconscious mind automatically brakes when necessary and drives by the motorist as you call 911 on your cell phone. The unconscious...

The Theravada Buddhist breath

Do not follow the breath in and out with your mind. Just focus on the sensation in your nostrils. 2. If your mind wanders, allow your thoughts to rise and fall like the waves on the ocean. Silently watch your thoughts when they arise. They are not you. They are just happening. That's it. Gently bring your attention back to the air in your nostrils.

You are not your thoughts or feelings

At first, your mind may seem like wall-to-wall thoughts or emotions, and you may have difficulty determining where one thought leaves off and the next one begins. You may also find that certain thoughts or emotions keep recurring like popular tunes for example, repetitive worries or favorite

What are some of the Advantages of Self Hypnosis

Self hypnosis is not a synonym for relaxation although relaxation is one benefit of self hypnosis. Self hypnosis is relatively easy to learn. Once you know how to use self hypnosis, you can literally change your life for the price of a few books and audio tapes in contrast to thousands of hours of therapy and counseling. There is a time for therapy and counseling but the one drawback to therapy is that you can't take your therapist with you everywhere you go. You can take the power of your mind with you everywhere and always.

Thumbnail Sketch of the Mind and Brain

People who suffer from chronic pain are not going to want to hear that, your pain is all in your mind. You will need to articulate to the client that their pain is very real and what they experience is very real. If you validate the client's experience they are more likely to accept suggestions from you.

Encrypted Instructions

In this example, the complete instruction is still there. It's just encased within a question format that serves to do two things Number one, it's no longer an order. The conscious mind no longer has to defend against an order. And number two, you can subtly deliver the instruction to the subject's subconscious mind without the conscious mind being aware of it (the conscious mind is aware of and focuses on the question). towards the subject's subconscious mind. Your goal is for the suggestions to suddenly appear in the subject's conscious mind, AS IF THEY WERE THEIR OWN IDEA.

Probationers Three Objects

The second thing he is supposed to be developing on the probationary path is the faculty of abstract thought, or the power to link up with the higher mind, via the causal body. He must learn to contact the lower mind simply as an instrument whereby he can reach the higher, and thus transcend it, until he becomes polarized in the causal body. Then, through the medium of the causal body, he links up with the abstract levels. Until he can do this he cannot really contact the Master, for, as you have been told, the pupil has to raise himself from his world (the lower) into Their world (the higher). Now both these things - the power to touch the Master and the Master's group, and the power to polarize himself in the causal body and touch the abstract levels are definitely the result of meditation, and the earlier letters you have received from me will have made this clear. There is therefore no need to recapitulate the earlier imparted data, save to point out that by strenuous meditation,...

Overwhelming emotions

Although you can't necessarily identify your story, you may be painfully aware of how powerful emotions like anger, fear, longing, grief, jealousy, and desire cloud your mind, torment your heart, and cause you to act in ways you later regret. Initially, meditation won't get rid of these emotions, but it will teach you how to focus and calm your mind and prevent them from distracting you. If you want, you can then use meditation to help you observe these emotions as they arise without avoiding or suppressing them. Over time, you can develop penetrating insight into the nature of these emotions and their connection to the underlying stories that keep generating them and ultimately you can investigate these stories and even dismantle them entirely. (For more on meditating with challenging emotions, see Chapter 11.)

Go from Sound to Silence

Sometimes you might enjoy moving from sound to silence within a period of meditation. Begin with full phrases and sentences, such as in the gathas and mantras noted above. For example, All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well, or, The Lord is my light. Then as you begin to calm down, just dwell on a word, such as well or light. At first, as you move into the single-word phase of your meditation, you can time it with the breath by saying the word to yourself on the out-breath. Then, as you go a little deeper, just let the single word sit on the edge of your mind without connecting it to the breath, saying it to yourself whenever your focus gets fuzzy. Then finally, if you reach a deep enough level, let go of words completely, and open yourself to silence.

The Law of Dominant Effect

This refers to the ideo-motor aspect of suggestion we talked about earlier the conscious mind will rationalize ways to transform any idea accepted by the subconscious mind into a reality. In addition, a stronger or dominant suggestion will take precedence over a weaker one. 1. When the conscious and subconscious minds are in conflict, the subconscious mind will always - without exception - prevail. 2. When the conscious and subconscious minds are in conflict, the subconscious 3. When the conscious and subconscious minds are in agreement, they do not work together - each gains force from the other. 4. The subconscious mind can be directed.

Penetrating your experience with insight

In the previous sections, I highlight concentration and awareness techniques that show you how to circumvent your drama, develop alternatives to your drama, or still your mind so that your drama doesn't disturb you. The problem is, these techniques still leave your inner stories more or less intact, and when your concentration weakens or your lovingkindness wanes, the same old distracting thoughts and troubling emotions come back to stress you out When you sit quietly for 10 or 15 minutes and notice your thoughts and feelings, you're making a radical shift in your relationship to your inner experience. (For more on observing thoughts and feelings, see Chapter 11.) Instead of being swept away by the current, you become, for the moment, an observer on the shore, watching the river of your experience flow by. Though the difference may seem inconsequential and you may not feel that you're making any headway, you've actually begun to loosen your story's stranglehold on your life....

Again, there is nothing rigid about it. One situation may require a firm hand that cuts right through to the heart of the matter. If you are acting with awareness it will be the right action. Another situation might require that you become quiet and not generate more confusion. If you stop and look, you will know what to do in each situation. If you view both the chaos and your mind with upekkha, you will know what to do and will not be bothered by the chaos. My dear, this is only a phase in your own progress. You have come this far. It is possible to go further. Look into the process involved in your mind right in the midst of reacting. When you are able to stop in your tracks, you are already doing quite well. It is only when you start intellectualizing again that you get into trouble. If you have the notion that as a practicing Buddhist you should be compassionate, then you are setting up an image of yourself. As soon as that thought is allowed to come into your mind, you are...

Traffic Jam Meditation

Let's look at more instances where mindfulness can be applied. When you are caught in a traffic jam, instead of getting uptight and tense, apply mindfulness. Be aware of your mind and body. Observe the sensations in the body. Notice your breath both in and out. Be aware of your sitting posture, feel the contact between buttocks and seat, and between back and back-rest. Sensations of warmth and pressure in those areas of contact can be felt and noted. Feel your hands on your steering wheel. Observe your mind, too, and notice its tense, edgy, impatient, agitated, disturbed, or whatever state. You'll be surprised that such simple awareness can produce a calming effect. You'll feel a little bit more relax, a little less tense. Then, if you maintain your mindfulness, observing say your in-breath and out-breath, you'll loosen up further and will relax even more. Such wholesome thoughts are healthy for both your mind and body. One should never underestimate the power of the mind.
